The Colorado Rockies won the National League Wild Card Game 2-1 at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday evening. We were inside the clubhouse as the champagne flowed.
On the latest Rockie Road podcast, hear from inside the Colorado Rockies clubhouse as Rox Pile Co-Expert Kevin Henry caught up with Colorado manager Bud Black, as well as players Kyle Freeland, Charlie Blackmon, Trevor Story and more.
The radio call courtesy of the Rockies Radio Network is shared as well.
On the podcast, which you can hear by clicking here, Jake Shapiro of Rox Pile breaks down what he calls one of the best games of baseball — given the circumstances — in a long time.

Freeland’s amazing story is discussed as he filled it up tonight for the Rockies in his 6.2 innings of mound magic.
The Rockies only scored two runs … but it was enough it reinforced what got the Rockies to this point.
Shap’s unique perspective being surrounded by Cubs fans for this big Rockies game was explored too.
There will be another Rockie Road Podcast later in the day to preview the Rockies’ series with the Brewers, which starts on Thursday at 3:07 p.m. (Mountain time) and will be televised by FS1.
This is the first time the Rockies have advanced to the NLDS since 2009 when they lost to the Philadelphia Phillies. The Rockies have only won two playoff series in franchise history.

Rox Pile was in Los Angeles and Chicago so we won’t be leaving you now. We will be in Milwaukee for the games Thursday and Friday and then Sunday and Monday (if needed) back in Denver. And there will be fresh edition of the podcast after the final pitch is thrown. You can count on that.
